I've got some info on the Haynes that might help you connect.

Sophia Hanks did NOT marry John Lynch.

Sophia Hanks was born c. 1809 in KY, and married Dillings Lynch 13 June 1827 Perry Co., IN. She lived in Spencer Co., IN in 1840 and St. Francois Co., MO in 1850. After the death of Dillings Lynch she married John H. Legrand 4 Oct 1842 Dubois Co., IN.

1850 St. Francois Co. MO
9 Oct 1850 p. 197/393
John Legrand 57 Va
Sophia 41 Ky
Elizabeth 23 Ind.
John 17 Ind.
William 15 Ind.
Matilda 13 Ind.
Tabitha 11 Ind.
James 6 Ind.
Sally Lynch 17 Ind.
John Lynch 15 Ind.
Nancy Lynch 12 Ind.
Elizabeth Lynch 11 Ind.
William Legrand 1 Ind.
Results of an mtdna study (which included descendants of Sophia Hanks and her sister, Margaret (Hanks) Legrand, wife of Andrew Jackson Legrand) at the Hanks Surname DNA Project show that Sophia Hanks was the daughter of Sarah "Sally" Hanks, granddaughter of Lucy (Hanks) Sparrow, and the great granddaughter of Joseph Hanks and Ann "Nancy" (Lee) Hanks.

Barton and Paul Verduin have the correct lineage. Adin Baber, Louis Warren and Caroline Hitchcock do not.

There are many records, including statements by descendants of Sophia (Hanks) Lynch-Legrand in an Atlantic Monthly article, to show that Sophia was a half-sister of Nancy (Hanks) Lincoln, President Lincoln's mother.

Making a correction to my previous post. Sophia (Hanks) Lynch-Legrand is a 1st cousin to President Lincoln. Her mother, Sarah "Sally" Hanks was the half-sister of Nancy ( Hanks) Lincoln, the mother of President Abraham Lincoln.
